Somehow, the dishes are always flavourful and appealing. Despite it still only being £5.95 per person. The vegetarian propaganda all over every surface is always entertaining, and sometimes hilarious - even occasionally updated. I managed 3 plates and didn't try everything. I know there are other restaurants with a similar concept to this in London, but this is comfortably the best, both for the variety, and for the fact that the unusual decoration creates a different, more convivial atmosphere - there are conversations going on all around you. The one in Russell Square feels a bit tired by comparison. I'd also add that there is definitely enough choice to sate any rogue carnivores in your group.

N.B. For some reason, there's another TripAdvisor listing out there for the same restaurant, under the name Indian Vegetarian Bhelpoori House.

I only live around the corner from this little delight, and since being taken there by a friend last year, I must return on average 3 times a month. The food is delicious, well stocked and always different.

I have also had one of the takeaway boxes from here which I shared with a friend (£3) and when trying to fit a roti bread in the box, the lid split, but the manager simply gave me another box with just roti bread in and said it was on the house.

Always pleasant staff, and never pester you for anything, always attentive, and just a great atmosphere with lots of veggie propaganda on the walls which is amusing and informative to read.

This a cheap and cheerful vegetarian Indian restaurant in Islington. Don't expect any frills. Judge the place on the quality of the food.

I hadn't eaten here for about seven years and was surprised to see that they now charge £5.95 for eat as much as you can buffet. What hadn't changed was the high quality of the food and the knowledge if the ingredients by the staff.

It is not the Ritz. The tables a Formica! But the food is worth the visit. You won't be disappointed.

Visited this restaurant for the first time with my boyfriend who has been before. Although I'm not vegetarian, the food was delicious and I enjoyed reading the propaganda and amusing facts plastered on the walls. The price, £5.95, for all you can eat is very reasonable and all in all a very pleasant meal.

If you are in London and looking for inexpensive Indian food than look no further! Buffet style Indian food, fill your plate up...and again...all for around £5..wow!! The fact that the buffet is on all day is a bonus, so you aren't time restricted.

It's pretty basic food, but you get a selection of three different rice, 4 curries, starters, salad bar.

There are lots of pro vegetarian info on the walls, and for anyone new to vegetarianism, you should find this interesting indeed!

This place really IS a gem and should be supported, so, the next time you are London and around Islington and are hungry, pop in, your tummy will thank you :-)
